EGX 2017 | Nintendo Highlights


This article was originally posted on Nintendo Scene on 24th September 2017.

It’s that time of year again, when gamers of all ages descend upon Birmingham for the annual Eurogamer Expo. Nintendo were once again there in force, with tournaments and a large amount of new and upcoming games. Obviously Super Mario Odyssey made up the lion’s share of the floorspace devoted to the Big N, but what did I get up to at the event? As a short disclaimer before I start, I’ll only be talking about titles that I played or set out to find out more about, so there maybe other titles unmentioned here that were present that I missed.

Review | Splatoon 2


I know that it’s been out for a while, but I wanted to actually really get into each mode before throwing my verdict out there. Turns out I didn’t really need to, but more on that a little later. So, the breakout hit of the Wii U has got a sequel on Switch! I can’t say I’m overly surprised, and I completely loved the original (despite it’s flaws), also I could have easily seen a follow up coming. However, how does Splatoon 2 stand up against the original and how does it stand now that gaming has moved on a little since its predecessor?
